UK-wide LGBT relationships survey

Email to POA:

Hi there,

RE: our UK-wide LGBT relationships survey.

We have had a tremendous response to our survey, over 700 respondents in fact which has far exceeded our initial target of 500 we set for ourselves back in May. I would like to thank you for your support because without you we couldn’t have got this far.

We decided back in June that we would extend our deadline from 31st August to 7th September so that we could capture some attention at the Pride events at the end of August/early September.

As we have only 4 more weeks to go we thought it would be a good idea to have one last big push to see if we could actually reach 1000 and this is where you come in. Would you mind pushing our link out again please to your members and partner organisations, and possibly include us in your tweets if you have a Twitter account: @LGBT_Research

The website link for more information and links to the survey is http://lgbtrelationshipsresearch.pbworks.com

I have also attached a copy of an A6 flyer and A4 poster that you can easily email or print out to display in your offices, meeting places etc.

Having recently looked at some of the data from respondents it appears that we are short on responses from people living in Northern Ireland, people from Black/ethnic minority groups and people from faith groups such as Sikhs and Muslims, so if you can help us by suggesting organisations that we can target, that would be most helpful.

Once again, we can’t thank you enough for the support you have shown us, it really is appreciated.
